A 15-year-old girl has died after being hit by a car while crossing Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach, police said Sunday.
The Long Beach resident was discovered unconscious and not breathing on the roadway at Ecology Way shortly after 8:45 p.m. on Saturday, according to a news release from the Huntington Beach Police Department.
Paramedics performed CPR on the victim before rushing her to Long Beach Memorial Hospital, where she was originally listed in critical condition.
The teen, who had suffered serious head trauma, later died, according to police. Her name has not been released.

He was interviewed by officers before being released.
